It will not surprise anyone, I hope, to know that I--who love working with the littlest kiddos, who sometimes loves storytime more than the kids, who in fact has a toddler at home--I love a good picture book. I love picture books that are just silly, I love picture books with great rhymes, I love picture books about big topics and big feelings that bring a tear to my eye--I really love picture books. And so it's always really hard for me to narrow down the list of books that were published this year to choose just my most favorite.
For my list this year I've included a few that are the newest in a favorite picture book series, a couple that really made me laugh, a few that were my son's favorites, and some that have also been getting attention from critics. All in all, these are the picture books that were the most memorable to me this year, and the ones that, when I see the covers, I can't help but react!
I hope you enjoy perusing the list, and sharing some of them with the tiny humans in your life!
